The Burning House of Green

I

The phlogiston in Amazon
burns out of their television.

She suddenly remembers her husband –
still living under the same roof –
went into the deep to find a rare truth 
about their relationship
and didn’t return to the heart.

She stared at the wildfire, finds it hard
not to breathe and survive,
albeit because of it suffers from the burn of the guilt.

II

 

How would you like

your lungs today?

– Smoked.

 

The door to the indoor

revolves, a turbine,

and streams in the ghost

of the flame.

 

The hearth. The earth.

The mom. Her small

kitchen.

 

All the accents uttered

bear a tinge of you know what –

how would you like your words?

  1. Thank you, Nick. Like I told Reuben the other day, we should write until the mute nature does its own and hunters not remain the only one to do so.
